Random Rita ~ Wednesday’s Weird & Wonderful WIPs!

ROB ATTACK

Evenin’, ladies!

With Halloween knockin’ on the door, I thought I’d mix it up today with a sprinkle of weird and a taste of wonderful stories hittin’ my inbox on the regular!

First of my weird ones is…

Somewhere, just off an Arizona highway in the Sonoran Desert, there’s an inn carved into the rocks. The owner and her staff are beautiful and eager to please… until it’s time to leave. There’s no way out, and beauty is skin deep. This is not a love story.

Anybody seen From Dusk Till Dawn? This story has that evil vibe of “once you go in, you never come out” about it! Well, I did say it was weird LOL!

Edward and Jasper are on their way to Lackland Air Force Base in Texas for bootcamp to become flyboys…needless to say, they never make it there!

The sun began to sink as they sped through Yuma, kicking up dust and pointing at odd, phallic-shaped cacti and gorgeous tile-roofed cottages in every size and color. The dummy light kicked on a few miles outside of Gila Bend, so Jasper eased the Jeep off the highway at the first Love’s Travel Stop along the way.

The sky was golden pink in every direction when Edward’s feet hit the concrete next to the gas pump. He reached for it and stretched on his toes. Then he twisted his neck back and forth and grinned.

A tiny brunette in tinier denim shorts peeked around the pump and eyed him head to toe. Edward smirked and nodded. “What’s up?”

Her red lips curved into a wide grin, and she lifted her sunglasses to rest on top of her head. “Hi.”

Edward swiped his card and waited a few moments before keying in his PIN. He lifted the nozzle and hit the button for regular unleaded. Then he waved at the cutie and followed Jasper inside to take a piss and maybe grab a candy bar.

She followed him through the store and over to the short line at the register. “I’m Isabella,” she said.

He glanced back. “Edward.”

Jasper saved him by cutting between them with his arms loaded with candy and sodas. “It’s going to be a long night, and some guy in the shitter said the next gas station is on the other side of the desert.” He noticed Isabella and lost his train of thought at the sight of her cleavage against the orange tank top that clung to her slim waist.

Edward shoulder-checked his friend to turn him around so they could pay and hit the road. His head cleared the second he breathed in fresh air. The harsh smell of gasoline greeted him back at the pump. There was a small puddle next to the back tire.

A tall guy in swim trunks and Chacos popped his head around the tank. “The auto-shut off failed,” he said with a shrug. “Sorry I couldn’t stop it sooner.”

Edward groaned when he saw the charges but reached out  to shake the stranger’s hand. “Thanks, man.”

“Any time.”

Isabella’s perfume danced on the breeze. “Let’s go, Felix,” she said, folding her tiny frame around her companion’s thick side. “I want to get back before dark.”

Felix nodded and checked the ties on a tarp covering the back of their rusty old pickup truck. Isabella turned to Edward and smiled. “Be careful out there,” she said. “The desert can get a little weird after dark.”

She backed away and held his gaze as she made her way to the passenger side of the truck. A flash of red reflected in her eyes from the truck before she lowered her sunglasses to shield them from the setting rays. The engine rumbled to life, and Felix waved before pulling away and kicking up a trail of pebbles and dust in his wake.

Jasper started the Jeep and tapped the dash. “Let’s go,” he said.

So far, 2019 has been a very good year for the return of some of our favorite authors and the trend continues *woo hoo!*

This month, prettykittyartist has started repostin’ Slapshot which, I’m happy to say, I hadn’t read as pdf so this wonderful story is fresh as a daisy to me!

He comes in for the stale coffee and the girl behind the counter. She lives for the moments he walks though her doors. Can she snag herself a star? Can he handle being caught? HOCKEYWARD EXB

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Chapters: 21 – Words: 64,934 – Reviews: 753 – Favs: 272 – Follows: 509 – Updated: 19h ago – Published: Oct 3 – id: 13401069

“Hi, I’m Bella. Want to go out some time.”

No matter how many ways I phrased it, it sounded like I was a desperate fangirl. Everyone knew Edward Cullen, star hockey player for the Seattle Twilight. I wanted to know the guy who ordered black coffee and lemon muffins. I wanted to know the guy behind the breathtaking smile.

I was taking Rosalie’s advice. I was going to talk to him the next time he came in—no matter what. It’d been a week since he’d been in and flirted with Angela while I peeped him from the stock closet, and I could hardly stand it. I’d spent that time doing my homework on him.

Yes, I started watching hockey with Emmett. I’d sat through three games and listened as he explained how the game was played. All the stupid, confusing rules. He explained the beard. There was some superstitious thing about hockey players and playoffs and beards, but apparently, Mr. Cullen did the beard thing throughout the season.

Maybe his cheeks got cold out on the ice. I had no idea. He was hot in spite of the bear straddling his jaw, but it didn’t make me any happier about it. I really, really liked his face, and that thing covered up too much pretty.

The day had been slow, which was both good and bad. Good because if he showed up I wouldn’t look like crap, but bad because I had way too much time to stand around and think about him. And think about what I was going to say to him.

“I notice you like your coffee black. How’d you like some sugar with that coffee.” I snorted at my own corny remark. God. I was losing my ever-loving mind.

“I’m Bella Swan, and I stare at you every day. Is it weird that I’m obsessed with you?” I smacked my forehead against the counter and groaned.

“It is a little weird.”

I held my breath. Oh God.

I looked up slowly, and there he stood. Smiling. “I’d rather you use the first approach, though. The answer is yes. I’d love to go out with you.”

My tongue swelled in my mouth, and I had the urge to bite down so it wouldn’t disappear down my throat. That’s what happened when you had a seizure, right? I was pretty sure I was having a seizure. “What?”

He chuckled and it was just beautiful. Just how I imagined it would be.

What can I say…we all love a good Hockeyward, right?

{and because we can never have too many banners…}

More weirdness…

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/13406126/14/Revenant

Ye who, passing graves by night, Glance not to the left nor right, Lest a spirit should arise, Cold and white, to freeze your eyes…

Rated: Fiction M – English – Supernatural/Romance – Chapters: 14 – Words: 6,383 – Reviews: 399 – Favs: 105 – Follows: 200 – Updated: 6h ago – Published: Oct 9 – id: 13406126

“Bella!” Eric burst into my office, a pile of papers in his hand. “You’re never going to believe where we got permission to investigate!”

I leveled him with a glare. “Have you ever heard of knocking, Yorkie?”

Eric Yorkie was our tech manager and also helped with scheduling our investigations. Ever since we started out as a group of misfits who lurked in the dark looking for ghosts, he was our go-to guy. He was annoying and overbearing, but he was great at his job.

“I’m sorry, I-I—” he stuttered as he began to back out of the room.

I sighed, rolling my eyes. I knew I was overreacting, but I had just spent three hours looking over video footage from our last investigation. I was exhausted, and we had found very little—if any—evidence for Mrs. Cope. “Oh, just get over here. What’ve you got?”

He grinned, tripping over his own feet as he rushed toward my desk. “Fort Rodman!”

My eyes widened. “Fort Rodman?”

“Yep. Fort Rodman.”

“Eric, I don’t know…”

Over the last few decades, there had been reports of heavy paranormal activity at Fort Rodman. Things like footsteps following people, disembodied voices, and a few people had even reported seeing a full-bodied apparition of a sparkling man.

As interesting as all that was, there was a downside. There had been numerous disappearances in the area surrounding Fort Rodman in the last several years. Some believe it’s because the area is cursed, that the souls of soldiers and pirates still wandered the property. There was a chance that if you entered the grounds at night, you might never come back. Others were convinced it was the work of a meticulous serial killer. I was on the fence.

“This is the chance of a lifetime, Bella. We’ll be in a group. Come on, please?”

I leaned back in my chair, crossing my arms against my chest. “Fine. Figure out all the details.”

He was right, it was the chance of a lifetime.

Sparklin’ apparition? Hmmm, wonder what that might be? Let’s find out…

I gave a heavy sigh, rubbing my hands over my face. It’d been a couple of hours since everyone headed out. I’d watched each of the cameras like a hawk, but continued to come up empty handed. At least I knew both teams were at least having similar experiences to what they had last time, so it wasn’t a total bust.

“Hey guys, how about switching spots?” I radioed out to them, to which everyone agreed.

My eyes were glued to the cameras set up at the battery. I was curious to see if maybe Jess and Tyler exiting the area might stir something up. I sat back in my chair, disappointed to see them emerge and leave the area.

I turned my focus over to the cameras set up at the fort, watching as Eric and Angela exited. I knew it would be a few moments before either team reached their new destination.

I turned my attention back to the battery. My eyes widened in fear and I covered my mouth in an attempt to block out my scream as I took in the image before me. There, staring up at the camera, was definitely a man. It was no apparition. I watched as he turned toward the noise of Angela and Eric approaching. I grabbed my radio. “Everyone head back to the van, now!”

And what frustrates the hell outta Bella is that no one else on her team can see a damn thing on the tapes!

Remember my remark about From Dusk Till Dawn? Keep it in mind LOL!

Like clockwork the bittersweet end of August rolled around, bringing with it the steady rumble of motorcycles for the annual biker rodeo. Only this time it was different. This time it brought Masen. AH MC Bikerward

Dragging Pegs — Leaning so far into a curve that the foot pegs drag on the road surface — not done on purpose

This story just started postin’ so there’s only one chapter up but no way was I gonna wait to rec a tatted up Bikerward, especially not one bein’ written by Jonesn!

Every year like clockwork the bittersweet end of August rolled around, bringing with it the start of a new school year and the steady rumble of motorcycles as they passed back and forth through town.

One by one, RVs, cars, and bikes alike lined up outside the entrance to the county fairgrounds, patiently waiting for the gates to open so they could finally set up to party. And party they did. All. Week. Long.

I closed my eyes to try and center myself, opening them back up to catch a group of guys staring at the booth from across the crowd.

One in particular.

Given the distance, fine details were hard to make out but I could tell he was the “handsome” one, but in that rugged sort of way. Like James Dean with a pack of cigarettes rolled up in his sleeve and a five o’clock shadow. If possible, his dark hair was wilder with no products containing the sides.

The gray T-shirt he had on was well worn with a tear at the collar. His shoulders filled it out nicely, rounding down to a pair of strong arms that were littered with colorful tattoos.

My gaze roamed back up to his face, my stomach dropping when he smirked. I glanced away without returning the smile.

“Who were you looking at?” Alice asked with a knowing smirk on her face.

See, smirks were no good. Smirks got you into trouble. As did dimples. I was a sucker for a good dimple.

“No one.”

“Okay. Okay. But seriously, which one is he? Point him out to me.”

“Absolutely not.”

“Come on, come on, come on.”

“No.”

Customers started lining up. I rose from my seat to get away from Alice and greet them. When the last person in line approached I nearly choked on my tongue.

Long fingers lifted black Oakleys to nest in a mess of brown hair. Green eyes sparkled in the sunlight, fine laugh lines framing them. That smirk of his wasn’t so easy to ignore up close and personal. Especially when I didn’t have the option to look away.

Yeah, handsomely rugged didn’t even begin to cover it.

*LE SIGH!*

Well, lookee here, Eewee darlin’! This one’s complete, although she’s got a lemony epilogue in mind we’re encouragin’ her to write *wink!*

ROB ATTACKhttps://www.fanfiction.net/s/13413744/1/A-Cowboy-A-Superhero-and-Bella-s-Prince-Charming

“Do you think the universe fights for souls to be together? Some things are too strange and strong to be coincidence.” Warned by fate as tender children that their soulmates were out there somewhere waiting for them; Bella, Alice and Rosalie struggle to navigate college and dating until one special night, when everything suddenly falls into place…

Bella has already met and fallen hard for Edward Cullen. Things take a strange turn when she meets his roommate, Jasper!

Jasper offered his hand for her to shake. It was then that Edward noticed the star-struck look on Bella’s face. She was just standing there loosely grasping Jasper’s hand and staring at him blankly. Edward glanced at Jasper’s face, relieved to see honest confusion at Bella’s behavior, and not the same dazed stare.

Bella suddenly snapped out of her fog of Déjà vu, jerking her hand back and looking around at the apartment strangely.

“Umm can you guys just hang on one second?” She requested nervously. “You’re single, right?” She asked of Jasper offhandedly as she pulled out her iPhone. Edward knew the look on his face could only be described as incredulous and he was really fucking concerned about the longevity of his current relationship. Bella hits a name from her favorite contacts page and raises the screen to her ear, chewing at her nails tensely as she waits for someone to answer. A female voice suddenly comes on the line, cheerfully talking a mile a minute. Bella tries several times to break into the one-sided conversation, getting more and more anxious before finally raising her voice to a yell.

“Pixie! Code Red!” The silence is deafening as Bella took a deep breath before swiftly spilling her message. “Ali, do you remember when we were kids and we would pretend we were princesses and I told you we would each find our Prince Charming one day, and you did your amazing ‘stare into the beyond – see the future shit’ and said it wasn’t you that would find your perfect man, that I’d be the one to find him for you?” Bella glanced nervously at the rooms other occupants, who were looking more and more confused as rapid talking and excited squeals emitted from the iPhone receiver. Bella’s responses were equally rapid. “Yep. His best friend. Yes. No. Nope! Not telling. Because the first time you hear his name is going to be in his own voice and you’ll thank me for it later. I love you too, bitch. Yep, dropping a pin to your cell.” She said the last part in a raised voice, as she pulled the screen away from her face and fired off a text before bringing the speaker back to her ear. “See you in 30. Bring Ro, I have a feeling hers is here too. There’s a pair of shoes by the door only a mammoth could fill,” she takes a quick peek at Edward’s average-sized sneaker-clad feet, then Jasper in similarly sized boots, “and I saw comic books on the bookcase… DC. Look ya skinny bitch, these are not the first graphic novels I’ve seen and, I shit you not, them bitches are in plastic sleeves. I know, I’m in the effin twilight zone!” Bella looked around the room one more time. “No, no girl stuff anywhere that I can see. I know. Love you, too. Bye.” She disconnects the call and slowly turns to face the men. “So umm… that probably seemed weird.” She blushes and fidgets awkwardly. When they don’t say anything, she speaks again. “Well I doubt I can make it much weirder so I’ll just ask… who’s supporting the DC Comics Universe and rocking the clown shoes?” Edward sputters for a moment before responding.

“Uhh…” Edward clears his throat, “that would be our other roommate, Emmett. He’s pretty tall…” When he drifted off and didn’t say anything more, Bella prodded again.

“Tall, single and into blondes?” She asks in a reaching tone. Edward gives Jasper a seriously confused look.

“Ok, yeah, I’m gonna go with very, very weird.”

Even though it’s marked complete, I want MORE!

Hope these’ll do you for now! Got any new ones to share?

Bella talks in her sleep. Emmett gets an idea. Jasper/Bella bonding ensues.

Twilight – Rated: T – English – Friendship – Chapters: 1 – Words: 4,389 – Reviews: 405 – Favs: 1,254 – Follows: 191 – Published: Aug 20, 2008 – Jasper, Bella – Complete

Why I’d never heard of this author before, I don’t know but I literally gorged myself on all her one shots…this was my favorite and so good, I had to share!

Major Jasper and Blackbird: or, Why Edward Decided (for the 23rd time) That Emmett Needed to Die Already!

Emmett was on babysitting duty. Jasper was also left at home, but no one expected him to watch Bella and he would never have offered unless it was an absolute necessity. 

Emmett hears something with huge potential for mischief when she sleep talks after dozin’ off durin’ a movie and surprises her next day with a trampoline!

And so it began. It was a matter of trial and error – Jasper didn’t quite know how much pressure to assert when Bella’s small frame made contact with the trampoline, and Bella didn’t know what to make of the added height and momentum he gave her. She soared off the right side a fair few times, always being caught in either Emmett or Jasper’s arms before she could injure herself. She showed no sign of nervousness or discomfort, only joy and abandon – a steady stream of her laughter ringing through the clearing.

Her feelings were having an incredible effect on Jasper; he couldn’t remember a time when he’d felt so wonderful without being near Alice. He couldn’t help but spread it around, causing a very silly grin to form on Emmett’s dimpled face.

Of course, Edward comes home from a huntin’ trip at exactly the wrong time…well, you’ll just have to read the whole thing to see how that turns out LMAO!

The wind is hot, and I’m sticky and sweaty and need to go home and take a shower. I should be taking advantage of the fact that we’re done early for the day, but I’m not. Instead, I’m sitting in my truck, waiting for the mom with the double stroller to walk by. I do this every day of the week and even though I worry I’m becoming a little creepy, I can’t seem to stop myself.

Some of you might recognize the first chapter from the Meet the Mate contest where it took 3rd place…Meli has since expanded this wonderful story, for which I am eternally grateful!

I first noticed this woman who I’ve dubbed – double stroller mom – on the Monday we started working to replace the sidewalks in the older neighbourhood on the east end of town. She was walking at a quick pace on the opposite side of the street, pushing a double stroller with one child jumping up and down in it, and another that looked like a baby. Behind her trailed a young girl, maybe five or six years old, who was trying to keep up.

Weeks later, I’m on my hands and knees in a dugout that was once a sidewalk and will be again soon, when I hear a soft sniffling sound. Looking up, I see two, small, bare feet with toenails that look as if they’re painted with sparkly pink dirt. As I slowly stand and raise my eyes, I notice knobbly knees just under the hem of a short pink nightgown with multi-color cupcakes printed all over it. I start chuckling at the cuteness of it all, but quickly stop when I see her face. It’s double stroller mom’s little mini-me. Her brown eyes look abnormally large on such a little face and for a moment, she just stares at me. Brushing the dirt off my hands, I look up at the house and then back at the girl. She looks as though she is going to be sick, but in a small, quiet voice she says “my mom,” and “blood” in such a way that it leaves me cold.

Thus begins Edward’s entrance into the world of Double Stroller Mom!  Oh, and she has a nickname for him, too…Rusty!

Prepare to meet one of the baddest ass Bellas ever!

“Someone in this bar has been banned,” my voice rang out in the silence. “Someone was told to stay away, or there would be consequences.” I stopped swinging, banging the business end of my stick on the wood floor.

Standing at his full six feet seven inches, I knew I wasn’t physically any match for him. However, I also knew every single person in that bar would have my back if me and my Slugger were to fail. He straightened his spine, but being the coward he is, he didn’t speak.

“You need to leave. You are officially banned from my businesses, in front of witnesses, in case you forget again.” Rocking my hips a little, I swung the bat in small circles over my shoulder.

“I didn’t forget,” he finally spoke. “I just didn’t think you were seriously going to turn away my money.”

The blood in my veins boiled harder at his words. “Are you implying something, Black?”

“Just that I’m a paying customer. Last I checked, you don’t give anything away for free.” He smirked, thinking he had me where it hurt. He knew I struggled to meet all of my responsibilities.

So I played it up. I let my eyes water a little, and my lip quivered as I dropped the bat to my side, relaxing my stance. He leaned closer to me. “But-but-but. . . ” Striking like a snake while his guard was down, I grabbed him by the gonads, twisting my wrist ruthlessly. “I don’t need your fucking money!”

The crowd that had mostly been silent up until then erupted. Some men groaned, most people cheered, and Emmett made his very tall presence known behind a crying Jake. I nodded, and he grabbed him by his neck, shoving his bent over body out the front door.

When I turned back to the bar, there were a handful of cheers, and I did a curtsy as the music came back up. Replacing the bat under the bar top, I caught the eye of my one night stand before he moved to sit back down.

Yup, Edward grew a pair and came back for round two, three, four…well, you get the drift LOL!

Anyone who’s ever suffered a long layover at a socked in airport can relate to Bella’s predicament, although I’m sure none of us was ever granted such a magnificent partner in mind numbin’ boredom LOL!

Across from my spot, a man was stretched out, already sleeping. On the floor beside him sat a bulging backpack resting against the seat and a battered guitar case. He was dressed in a white T-shirt and jeans, his feet clad in dusty work boots. The way he was curled up, his T-shirt had ridden up over his pants, exposing a wide expanse of his naked back. His jeans were pulled down, the waistband of his underwear peeking over the edge. Tilting my head, I read Fruit of the Loom written across the banding. Feeling like a stalker, my eyes drifted lower, settling on his ass. His well-shaped, very firm-looking ass. The angle he was bent in showed it off to perfection. Squinting my eyes, I could even see two dimples that rested just over the swell of his ass cheeks and the sudden desire to reach across and touch them made me actually sit on my hands so I didn’t do exactly that.

He was lying down—stretched out across a few seats. Maybe I should try doing that. I stood up and pulled on the wide, metal arm rail, but it didn’t budge. I pushed and pulled, but I couldn’t get it to move. I moved to the next set of seats and tried again. Obviously, some of them had to pull up so you could lie down. Ass-man had figured it out. Surely I could, too.

I circled around and warily leaned over the back of the seats he was sleeping on to see how the arm lifted. I was shocked when I realized the arm wasn’t missing. Mr. Ass-man was curled right around the metal—so tightly it was digging into his stomach. I frowned at the dark circles under his eyes, but understood better how he was able to sleep in such an awkward position. He was exhausted.

My gaze strayed over to my backpack. I wondered if I should cover him with my blanket and if there was any way of sliding the airplane pillow under his head, to make him a little more comfortable. I wanted to do something, help in some small way. Why, I had no idea, but the urge was overwhelming.

His eyes were now open—staring right at me. Wide, startled eyes, so green it was like losing oneself in a deep forest. I felt my cheeks burst into flames at being caught leaning over him and staring.

I waited for the anger. The yelling that would start any second.

Instead, his full mouth curved into a slow, deep smile.

“Hello.”

The next few hours entail monumental bondin’ that makes it imperative to choose a combined final destination!

Bella’s night doesn’t go as planned when she forgets an address and stumbles upon an injured stranger instead. AH

Why is it that a beat up to hell and back Edward tugs at our heartstrings? Oh, and Bella’s as well…

My phone died right around the time I hit the corner of Chestnut and High. I wish I were high when another gust of cold wind flies up my skirt. Shivering, I cross the street, stopping right in the middle of the road when a moan comes from behind one of the parked cars.

“Hello? Is someone there?” Another moan. “Look, if you’re planning on attacking me, I’d advise against it.” Looking side to side, I noisily dig around in my purse. “I’ve got a new can of pepper spray and I’m not afraid to use it.” Key point being that it’s new.

Another moan comes out of the darkness before cheers erupt from inside the surrounding warm houses. I creep closer to look around the back of the car where I find a man sitting on the curb, his head in his hands.

“Hey, are you okay?”

With my finger firmly in place on the pepper spray, I move closer until I’m standing right beside the guy.

“Excuse me. Hey . . . ” I reach down and touch his shoulder, and he jerks away, looking up at me in fear.

“Oh, wow.” I automatically cringe, unable to help it when I see the condition of the guy’s face. He’s obviously been in a fight by the looks of that busted lip. His eyes are swollen shut. But what really worries me is the bloody gash on his forehead.

She insists on callin’ an ambulance to take him to the hospital and winds up goin’ with him. Then, she can’t get rid of him LOL!

“I’m sorry, Mr. Masen, but I can’t in good conscience let you go without someone to stay with. I just can’t.” The doctor repeats my words from earlier in the evening and Edward looks at me out of the side of his eye.

“Oh, no. Huh uh.” I simultaneously shake my head and wave the idea away with a sassy finger.

“What? You heard the doc. Only twenty-four hours and I’ll be out of your pretty brown hair.” He reaches up to flick a curled end and my mouth drops.

He cannot be serious.

Still haven’t found out who beat him up but I have my theories…make your own!

The fresh mountain air filled my lungs, and I could almost feel the cobwebs blowing away. Ahhh. Grown-up camp might even be tolerable if the other inmates could just learn to suffer in silence like me.

I didn’t want to completely lose the group, but as a kid, I had played enough hide-and-seek with my brothers to know a count to fifty was in order. I’d just reached “thirty-eight Mississippi” when I heard someone calling my name. Crap.

“Isabella? Isabella Swan?”

Not Mike.

“Yeah, I’m over here.”

“Oh, thank God.” Heavy boots jogged toward me, and I got my first close-up view of our shy hike leader as he dropped to one knee next to my pack. “Are you okay?”

Damn, he was gorgeous. Like, drop dead, but first tear off all your clothes gorgeous. Or maybe tear off his clothes gorgeous. Fit and tan and mountain-man scruffy, wild hair poking out all around the edges of his camo-patterned Red Sox cap. Outfitted in neutral tans and greens that melted into the earth, he looked like someone far more comfortable blending in than sticking out—someone like me.

A semicircle of sweat darkened his tan T-shirt, and the rise and fall of slightly labored breathing distracted me to the point where I couldn’t look away from that sexy chest. I couldn’t tell if he was out of breath from his jog or the anxiety of misplacing one of his hikers in his first half hour in charge. Either way, it was my fault.

His eyes were hidden behind brown-tinted shades, but I could feel him checking me out for visible signs of injury or worse—something he couldn’t see that might be even more dangerous out here in the wild.

Dayum, where the hell are my hikin’ boots?

And because I can never resist a good vamp fics…

With Edward gone, Bella believes his every lie and assumes he has it easy. It isn’t long before she finds herself in his shoes. (No, not literally.) NM AU

The story is told mainly from Bella’s point of view, but for some reason Edward seems to think it’s okay if he interjects in the middle of each chapter, therefore each has alternating points of view—Bella/Edward/Bella.

At first it seems like such a rush, plummeting feet first into the freezing cold water. It makes me feel alive for the first time in months, but then my body turns numb and I feel nothing.

My heart is frozen, just like yours, but it’s not the same.

I don’t want to be here anymore.

. . . . .

Leaving you has solved nothing. Leaving you has only proven what I already knew: I am the very worst kind of monster, and I have all but killed us both.

You were far too young to die; you had barely begun to live. And I? I have lived long enough.

I don’t want to be here anymore.

Trust me…neither of them actually dies! Someone, and we don’t know who yet…she was abandoned by her maker, turned Bella and it’s drivin’ me crazy waitin’ for her to remember who she is and for Edward to learn she’s still alive!

Of course, whether he’ll be able to find her or not when he does is the question LOL!

Okay! Did that make up any for the wait?

Happy Friday, ya’ll!

Carlisle Cullen is a pillar of the community. He’s a humane veterinarian/philanthropist who owns an animal hospital & shelter. He’s a loving husband, a devout father, & his three sons follow in his footsteps as well as on a Harley. They’re tattooed bad boys who right the wrong to protect & save. They have hearts that fall in love with the blink of an eye. Well, except for Edward.

The Cullen boys don’t tolerate cruelty to animals and take great delight in breakin’ up dog fightin’ rings!

“Now, you want to beat up one another, be my guest, go right ahead and make more money, but heed my warning. If I have to come back here because of cruelty to any animal, I will drag your ass off and treat you with the same care. And believe me; you don’t want to get Edward angry.”

Dad pulls on his collar, starts to walk away and stops. “Don’t try anything funny … You are surrounded. My boys don’t fucking miss.”

He walks out from the crowd with the rest following behind.

A gun cocks and Jasper turns in lightning speed and fires at the perp’s feet. “Now, that was a warning shot. I will go higher.” He points his gun at the guy’s crotch.

As we walk away, we leave them all in utter silence.

Of course, the ring leader don’t take kindly to losin’ his dogs and tries to retrieve them, with the emphasis on try!

“Cullen, you took our dogs.”

“You want to take this up with the police, Ricky?” He says nothing. “I didn’t think so.” I sigh. “And I thought it was going to be an easy takedown.”

“You and your group …”

I interrupt, “Gang. We are a biker gang.”

“You and your gang are a pain in my ass,” Ricky complains.

I smart mouth, “I was thinking the same thing about you and your dog abusers.”

Ricky pulls out his gun and Jazz cocks his. “Oh, I wouldn’t do that, Ricky. I was itching to blow away someone’s dick tonight.”

“I want my dogs, Cullen,” he roars and lifts his gun.

Well, that was enough for Jazz and he shoots Ricky’s weapon out of his hand. The other guy runs.

I pick up the gun while Ricky rolls around on the ground, screaming he’s going to kill us.

“You can’t find good hired help these days.”

Now, if only we could convince Gabby to update once or twice a day *gigglesnort!*

The walk back to my apartment was always the best part of my day. Not only because I was going home, but because it took me straight through downtown and right by this trendy tattoo shop, Masenry Ink.

It may have surprised most that for as long as I had been the boring, responsible one, I had also wanted a tattoo, just never … seized the moment.

On sunny days like this, I’d sometimes stop and stare at the glaring sign, imagining, wondering why it was misspelled all while willing myself to go in. But I never did.

Today was no different.

Oooh, I can hardly wait for Bella to carpe the hell outta the diem and waltz herself into that tattoo shop!

Blood has been spilled on both sides and the only way to ensure loyalty is also through blood. Mobward. HEA. AH.

Yeah, like I was ever able to resist another Mobward *facepalm!* Okay, so after an uprisin’ among the leaders of the cartel is quelled, an important meetin’ takes place at the home of Charles Swan…

Each leader around the table reviewed the documents before them. As expected the Cullens and the McCarty’s had gained territory while the Volturi and Blacks had lost territory.

Aro was the first to speak. “Edward, my dear friend, there must be some mistake. According to this document you are removing one half of our territory and sharing it across the Masen, McCarty and Cullen Families.”

Edward leaned back in his chair and smiled, replying to Aro with the same false politeness. “You must understand that your attempt to overthrow my Family failed. Your territories have been altered to compensate the three successful families for the trouble you caused them with your dispute. To the victors go the spoils, which is in keeping with the old ways you fought so hard for, my old friend. In short, these documents contain the terms of your surrender. You should be grateful that we are so civilised, if I followed the old ways to the letter you, your wife, your children and all your coconspirators would be executed with all your territories divided amongst the victors. I think the agreement in front of you is very reasonable by comparison.”

And don’t think Charlie gets off with a mere slap on the wrist!

“William, Charles and Caius, I am pleased and honoured to hear you pledge your loyalty to me and my family. But blood has been spilled on both sides and I believe that the only way to ensure your loyalty to me and my family is also through blood.”

The men shifted uncomfortably in their seats wondering what Edward had in mind and whose blood he wanted to ‘ensure their loyalty’. Aro’s gun was still on the table in front of Edward who was still toying with it menacingly.

William Black spoke up first to ask the question they all feared the answer to, “Whose blood do you desire to quench your thirst, Edward?”

Edward turned his gaze to the far corner of the room. “Isabella’s,” was all he said.

Does he mean that literally? You’ll have to read to find out!

And because I love you, here’s one that’s COMPLETE!

“Let me see,” Rose sat down and held out her hand.

She passed the envelope to her friend and went to get changed. The hiss made her smile. She had known that Mike was stupid, but she didn’t know that he had a death wish.

“You do know who this is right?”

She nodded as she came back in the room, tugging her hair up in a messy bun. “I do, I never thought that Mike was that stupid though. I wonder how he’ll take the news.”

Rosalie looked up, “He’s not an idiot Bella. Emmett said that Edward has suspected Jess for a while. I have a feeling that one of his guys has copies of these pictures already and is on their way to see him.”

“One of them was following me at the office. He wasn’t being very stealthy.” Bella giggled.

Rose laughed, “Edward is not gonna like the fact that you were able to spot the guy.”

“Fuck Edward. We all grew up together. I know what goes on in the family. If he wants to get pissed off that I spotted Felix then let him. I have a feeling he’ll be calling anyway.” Bella took the pictures back from her friend. “Come on. I wanna be outa here before the shmuck gets back.”

Well, of course Edward has the same photos LOL!

Edward pulled the photos out and almost laughed at the irony. “He must be stupid.” He murmured to no one.

He looked at the pictures of Michael Newton and Jessica in a passionate embrace and grinned. Sure, he was pissed, but he also knew that Mike had just fucked up royally. “I want him brought to me, after Bella gets her revenge. He won’t see another sunrise.” He informed Felix. The man nodded and then left the room to carry out his assignment.

Edward smiled as he picked up his phone and called the familiar number.

“Hello, Edward.”

“Hello, Isabella. I trust that you have seen the photos.”

“I have. I want to know what you’re planning.”

Edward chuckled, “I haven’t decided. I am either going to kill him, or maim him. What are you doing to him?”

He heard her laugh, “Right now Emmett and Garrett are moving all of my belongings out of his apartment, but I’m also taking all the furniture except for the bed. I don’t know if you are aware, but those were taken here as well. He fucked that whore in our bed. So that is all he gets.”

He heard the anger in her voice, “Where are you gonna go?”

“Em and Gar are putting this stuff in storage and I am checking into the Biltmore.”

“Why don’t you just come and stay here? You’ll have a room all to yourself. I promise that no one will disturb you.” Unless you want them to, he thought.

“I don’t know, let me think ab out it okay.” He heard voices and then Bella said, “Your sister just got here with my blow ups, I’ll call you later.”

She was gone before he could ask what she was planning. He could only hope that her revenge didn’t cause her to get hurt.

If it did, Mike would regret it.

Tattwards and Mobwards…the best of both worlds *fist bump!*

Happy Friday, y’all!

Evenin’ ladies!

Growin’ up Texan, I’ve seen my fair share of rodeos and there’s an aura surroundin’ bull riders that sets them apart as a different breed of man!

First off, you’d have to be in the best shape of your life to manhandle 2 tons of ragin’ bull tryin’ to buck  you off and then kill you!

These men are lucky to end their careers without permanent injuries of some kind. Hell’n they’re lucky to actually live to see the end of their rodeo careers!

Edward Cullen lived but the price he paid put him in smack dab in the path of Bella Swan…

Bella’s an exemplary student who enjoys her part-time job at the University, helping with event days; except when she has to deal with one particular sponsor. Edward Cullen runs the most popular country bar in the area. Handsome, charming and cocky, he only has eyes for one member of the student body. Can he ever make her see beneath his façade?

“My last competition, there was a bull. He was fucking ornery as hell—in fact his name was Satan’s Spawn. Bad-tempered, nasty piece of livestock. Most were afraid to ride him. The purse to best him was huge.” I looked at her and shrugged. “I was young, cocky and stupid. And I wanted that purse.”

“He won?” She guessed.

“No. I rode him twice. Lasted the longest both rounds.”

“What…” Her voice trailed off.

“Something went wrong. I felt my hold slip and instead of falling back and away, I fell forward.” I drew in a deep lungful of air. “I tried rolling, but he got me before they got to him. He stomped on my leg and hip, crushing the bones. Luckily, they got me away before he started to gore me. I remember the pain, screaming, people running, but that’s all.”

“What was the damage?”

I tapped my leg. “I have an artificial hip and enough rods and posts in my leg to erect a small building. They weren’t sure I’d walk again, but I’m stubborn.”

Well, you can’t do what Bella does and not wanna get your hands on that long, lean, sexy body to make sure it’s fully capable of performin’!

“I wish I had a massage table,” she mumbled as she crawled up the bed, straddling my thighs, pushing my body deeper into the mattress. “This would be so much easier.”

I shook my head. “No, I like it like this.”

I didn’t have to see to know she rolled her eyes at me.

She was so good at this. Within moments, I was lost in a haze of pleasure. Up and down, back and forth, she pressed and pulled, her fingers digging into muscles I didn’t even know were sore and easing the ache. She stretched over my back, the silk of her skin brushing on mine as she moved in a constant fluid motion, never ceasing in her ministrations. I found the strength in her tiny hands amazing—how her little fingers could dig so deep and coax hardened muscles into a relaxed state was beyond my comprehension.

I tried desperately not to get turned on by the feel of her gliding fingers over my buttocks, but it was to no avail. My cock twitched and lengthened, pressing into the mattress, wanting relief. Wanting her hands on him.

*WickedEvilGrin!* Yeah, you’re just gonna have to read it to see how THAT ends LMAO! Lucky for you, it’s COMPLETE!

My life had always been a sea of carefully laid plans, until he blew through. Cool and quiet, like the calm before the storm. It was brewing. Short summary inside. AH

Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Angst – Chapters: 10 – Words: 28,229 – Reviews: 701 – Favs: 285 – Follows: 507 – Updated: May 3 – Published: Mar 23 – id: 11134279

Bella moves to the tiny fishin’ village of Clallam for her very first job as a teacher. She doesn’t want to fall for her next door neighbor but Cull’s lure is irresistable!

Through the rhythmic splashes, I heard the slam of a screen door and my eyes snapped open to find my neighbor’s tall frame outlined in the blurry moonlight. Even at this ungodly hour his movements were lithe and concise, unhindered by the bulkiness of his hooded, gray sweatshirt and constricting, brown suspenders that hooked into a pair of baggy, orange overalls. The black beanie fit snugly on top of his head. My line of sight was cut off when he climbed into the cab of his rusted, red truck. I ducked out of the beam of his headlights to watch him retreat before heading to bed. And I laid there long after he’d gone, just thinking. About my long drive to Clallam. About the new school I was starting. How I missed my family and friends. But mostly I thought about him.

Fishin’ is a dangerous and heartbreakin’ profession where wives and loved ones spend their lives waitin’ for their men to come home…or not!

“You know that big storm we got over the weekend?”

I nodded.

“Well, I guess the worst of it was out at sea ’cause it capsized one of the crabbers.”

The school closed. I was slowly losing my mind not having anything to do but sit and wrack my brain for the name painted on the side of my neighbor’s boat. For the life of me, I couldn’t remember what it was, if he crabbed or hopefully just fished.

Every night I hadn’t woken to the squeaking of a screen door, I would look out in hopes that I just hadn’t heard it. But his truck was never there. He was never there.

“I’m sure he’s fine. I mean, wouldn’t Lea know if he wasn’t? She is his landlord.” Emily reminded me.

Emily took off later that afternoon, leaving me to watch the sunset alone on my front porch swing. But with everything that was going on in my head, I couldn’t enjoy it because what if he was dead? What if he didn’t have family to mourn him? What if he didn’t have a soul? A flower? Maybe I should have clipped a flower for him. Just in case.

I heard his truck before I saw it putter over the small hill in our shared driveway. My heart sped while his engine stalled and then restarted before he made it to the sparse gravel alongside his house.

My first instinct was to run up and give him a hug and make sure he was okay. But when he waved, I waved. And that was that. He disappeared into his house and I hadn’t seen him since.

*Phew!* Well, Cull made it back home safe and sound…this time!

Slow burn on this one, darlin’s! Take my advice and put it on alert if you’d rather wait until it’s complete!

What fics have kept you on the edge of you seats?

In this fic, Edward and Bella are both war weary…she from a broken relationship and he from actual war. Each seeks peace, which is hard to come by. They might not have been lookin’ for love but it’s what they find when they meet and, ultimately, it’s what heals their poor, battered hearts!

The fact that Edward has a beard all through the story is a major turn on for me ’cause I loves me a thick, soft beard on a man! Rob’s mountain man beard? Puddle of goo, here! What I wouldn’t give to nuzzle and sniff my way around his neck and cheeks *sigh!*
